This catalog was published for the solo exhibition ‘Tokyo Blues 1977’, held at Taka Ishii Gallery in August 2013. After their exhibition at Nikon Salon in 1977, these works remained untouched in
Araki’s storeroom until their recent rediscovery. This book includes 43 photographs loosely centered about a woman from Kyushu who Araki had just met. It captures the languidness and blues of Japan in the 1970’s.
